Nelson falls in love with a mangy, flea-ridden fox whom he meets at the rubbish tip while rescuing Marion. However, he fails to listen to his friends who tell him that the only reason he finds her so intoxicating is because she is on heat and he will regret it later.

Meanwhile, Kali is livid that pub owner Gary has erected some anti-pigeon spikes to prevent her from landing on the walls of the pub garden. She decides to take revenge.

And Destiny is overjoyed that Gary has finally entered her into the South Docklands Area Landlord Association Pub Dog of the Month category. However, when she catches fleas from Nelson's new girlfriend it looks as if her chance of winning is in jeopardy.

Song: Breaking Up Is Such A Faff - Sung by Nelson, featuring Marion and Sandra.
Written by Danielle Ward, Jon Brown and Daniel Peak.
